Finnish coffee, beverage and food supplier Paulig has committed to reducing its total global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) to net zero by 2045. 

Paulig, which produces the Presidentti, Juhla Mokka and Paulig Mundo retail coffee brands, is currently seeking to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions from its own operations and scope 3 GHG emissions from its value chain by 80% and 50% respectively by 2030, from a 2018 baseline.   

The Helsinki-based business achieved a 22% GHG reduction in its own operations last year compared to 2018. 

In April 2023, Paulig launched a €2.7m ($2.9m) Climate Fund to support projects related to wheat and coffee value chains and logistics. 

“This commitment is a continuation of our climate actions and an important step forward in our journey of becoming a sustainable frontrunner in the industry. In recent years, we have progressed towards our goals for 2030 and will continue implementing these actions and initiatives. Setting a long-term net-zero target will guide us in accelerating our transition and actions for coming decades, including planning new innovations, setting growth targets and providing important signals for implementing new technologies,” said Rolf Ladau, CEO, Paulig. 

As part of its Sustainability Approach 2030 programme, Paulig has pledged to make all its packaging fully recyclable by the end of 2025. In May 2024, the group introduced recyclable vacuum coffee packaging for its retail coffee ranges in Finland and Estonia. 

Paulig achieved 5.6% year-on-year sales growth to €1.1bn ($1.2bn) in 2023 and reported coffee sales and volumes as increasing ‘significantly’. The business also posted a 57% year-on-year rise in EBIT to €90.1m ($96m) in the 12 months ending 31 December 2023.
